This financial support is creating jobs for vulnerable people

By granting this financial envelope to the Ampo association, the Rotary Club wants to create rewarding jobs for vulnerable people, especially those with disabilities, in order to improve their living conditions. Focused on the fight against polio, which often deprives patients of their ability to move, the Rotary Club not only wants to improve the mobility of these people but also to participate in their economic and social development. Hence the relevance of this donation, which is in line with the 2022 theme “serve to change lives.

According to the president of the Rotary Club Ouagadougou Millennium, Somé Gontran Der Pascal, the funds today were mobilized through the synergy of three Rotary clubs from various countries, with the support of the Rotary International Foundation. He said he was confident that the resources would be well used, given the work done in the tricycle production center, which he was able to see for himself.

Visibly happy with the support provided by the Rotary Club Ouagadougou Millennium, Denis Yaméogo, general manager of AMPO Burkina said that this gift was welcome, because it will strengthen the technical capacity of the center for the manufacture of tricycles to facilitate the mobility of people with disabilities. According to him, the equipment has already been acquired and the donors of the day were able to see it at the center. The funds allocated by the Rotary Club will also be used to train four people with motor disabilities from four regions of the country (North, Central-East, Central-West, and Central) in cycle mechanics, welding and painting. To date, the recruitment process is underway and should soon deliver its results. These people, once their training is completed, will be able to manufacture tricycles and repair broken down tricycles in their various localities.

It should be noted that the ceremony to hand over the donation was attended by District Governor Christopher Closter 9101, who is visiting Burkina Faso.
